Cheryl Ladd and Robert Coleby play a happily married couple. One day he is literally raped by a seriously deranged woman. She then charges HIM for rape! He is found guilty and sent to jail. Ladd is confused, hurt and angry. Will their love survive? It's based on a Danielle Steel book--what do you think?

I caught this on cable many years ago. It got almost no theatrical play in the US (it was made in Australia) and died quickly. It's easy to see why. The story is dull and drawn out--you KNOW how this is going to end. The acting is pretty good. Coleby is very good (and bare-chested a lot)in his role--even Ladd was good! She's a beautiful woman but no great actress but she still pulled this off. Basically if you liked Steel's novel you might like this.

Also the R rating is kind of silly. The rape scene is the reason--it's violent (but not graphic). Cut the rape out and you got a G rated TV movie of the week material. Not terrible but not good.
